the door, but one of the problems with the disconnect that i was alluding to earlier between how science deals with this question and how lawyers deal with this question is that you actually get a fundamental disconnect between the two systems. so you mentioned that lack of emotional control or lack of ability to control your preferences might lead to insanity, but, in fact, in most jurisdictions as you know, that's not true. after hanky was acquitted under the american law institute test because he could not control his behavior, congress in most state jurisdictions changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly
on that and say it's already here. so the idea that we should wait for the science to get better, i think, is just, it's too late for that. so the cat is already out of the bag. the question is what do you do now that it's in the courtroom. well, we have dualing experts. we have judges sitting in a gate keeping role who have to decide whether or not the evidence should be admissible and whether it should be permitted in a case. my view is that the more evidence that we can provide to a scrr or to a judge -- jury or to a judge in their decision makings, some objective evidence, some evidence to bolster things like a diagnosis of schizophrenia or i.q., all the better. at the same time we need the critics in the courtroom explaining the shortcomings of the science so that we don't have false evidence that is introduced or undue reliance on science that isn't quite there yet. my preference is recognize it's already there, but make sure that we have robust discussions about the validity of the science before people buy into it too much. >> yeah, i would just add that i basically agree that it's already
to do on my science project for tomorrow. what is that scent? it smells really good in here. that scent is coming from my science project. i made a whole new flower out of two different flowers. you made a hybrid? yeah, i combined two different things to make a third new thing. i combined a calla lily with a rare scalicanlaloopy flower; i call my hybrid flower a callaloopy. that's amazing, lisa, you're totally going to get an a. oh, i'm just so happy the plant bloomed. yeah, it opened all right. yeah, i was worried that the flower wouldn't bloom, and if it didn't, i couldn't prove that my plant's a hybrid of these two. ♪ i see you got your little flower to bloom...it's cute. but you're never going to beat my science project. it's a hybrid of a garden phlox flower and a holly bush, and i call it...francine. if you say so, francine. come on hector, i'm going to get some water for my callaloopy. yeah. ♪ what is that gunk on your leaf? a dead bug!

18, at 9:00 p.m. eastern and pacific on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org. >> the health science committee today held a hearing on research and development and how it leads to innovation and economic growth. the witnesses included the president of the regular polly technic institute and the c.e.o. of texas struents. congressman lamar smith on your screen chairing the one hour and 40-minute hearing. >> the science, space and technology committee will come to order. i'll recognize myself for an opening statement and the ranking member for her opening statement. the topic of today's hearing, the first of this committee and this congress, is american competitiveness. the role of research and development. this is an appropriate hearing because much of the jurisdiction of this committee relates to keeping america globally competitive. america's ability to compete depends on whether we have the present vision to conduct the science that will define the future. as the wall behind me says, where there is no vision, the people perish. this committee's goal and today's hearing is to help de

science and faith. look at what's coming along. we're going to unlock the human genome, we're going to engage in genetic engineering to eliminate inherited disease and perfect mankind. we may overcome, to a great extent, the aging process. we may reinvent life itself. we may feel as though we're taking on god-like powers. and there will be people, particularly in your communion, but also in yours, who will say why are we tinkering with what god and god alone should be doing? we are tinkering with the genetic structure of man. we are changing man as we have known him and has been presented by the koran and by the bible. do you see that coming? and will it sway people more toward religion or away from religion? >> well, i think medicine for the last hundred years has already undergone a lot of change. we don't even have to guess the years coming up. and certainly, as people who live in modern america, we all profit, religious or not we profit from the medical advances. >> now, the pharmaceuticals that come into existence by reason of biotechnology and genetic -- genetic -- the genetic
steady since i did not have a formal education. i did not have math or science. and someone said to check out this new field of computer science. and he said it was a man-made language. and i thought, great. i am good with language, and i know how to make stuff. fortunately, that was a great and rising newfield. tavis: what do you make a looking back on it now? what do you make of how it came to be, the burgeoning growth of computer technology just happened to coincide with your arriving here? somebody suggested, maybe you ought to try this? i am asking how you process that. i get to that because of the success you have had, sitting on the obama commission. it is quite a fascinating journey. how do you look back at that decision at the time when you can barely speak english to study computer science? >> what is taught me is behind every closed door there is new opportunity. it is like every time life shut the door, it closes on me, high end up doing something else, and it is a new world that opens up for me. i learned in my life's journey many times that when something -- when it looks li
have my two science leaders, [inaudible] and janet gray, so science questions galor, they can handle them all, policy questions, we'll have to deflect some of those to nancy for another time, so what i'm going to present today is what we call our healthy home and healthy world tours, i'll talk a little bit about who the breast cancer fund is and then we're going to walk through kind of the rooms in your home talking about tips for avoiding exposures that are linked to breast cancer and i will talk a little bit about the different chemicals, where they're found, things you can do to avoid them and also some policies, and then we'll kind of go beyond the home to talk about the kinds of exposures that might be not within our control in the house but elsewhere. and it looks like i have videos so that is good. so, the breast cancer fund is a national organization that works to prevent breast cancer by eliminating the environmental exposures linked o the disease, mostly we talk about chemicals and radiation that are linked to breast cancer, we are a little different from your breast cancer
that you have to ask the question from the legal system and from the science perspective as to what free will might mean. on the science side, the question really is, and this is what we were debating, is the question whether you can operationally define free will so you can measure it? from a scientist's standpoint, a construct doesn't really mean anything if you can't measure it. i have been asked many, many newer scientists including ken, what exactly does free will mean and how do you measure it? it could be like emotional control. it could be something like impulsivity, impulse control and you get back to the basic problem that chris who is a colleague of anita's at vanderbilt, wait he has put it, how do you distinguish and irresistible impulse from an impulse not resisted. there is a basic gray area, a difficult ability to say, did you actually choose that and did you choose it in a way that the law would recognize. so the law all of the time develops concepts that scientists are interested in studying. it might be competency, for example. well, competency is really a multifaceted

an adequate caseload is, given the number of hours that the attorney works a year? and this is a science. this is something that most offices are beginning to do now. so i have copies of the report. and the problem is without this information you have no way of knowing how many cases the district attorney's office is handling, the public defender's office is handing and how serious the cases are. one of the points that we make in our report is that we have seen a huge increase in three-strike cases and homicide cases over the past six years. and so that is something that obviously effects the workload, but not the case load >> if you simply count cases you won't distinguish between more serious cases and less serious cases and you will see in our report we have broken down by attorney. every attorney's caseload and workload is reflected in the index and that is how we determine what number of cases we can handle. and we use that to provide that to the mayor's budget office. the second issue also relates to the question of trials. and you saw in the report that the number of cases refer
the different varieties but we shouldn't leave out the sciences as well so a lot to celebrate. when i was first introduced to our relatively new counsel general by angela he said "he's one of us" and angela said "i'm not so quite sure counsel general" but i shared with him when i took my seat on the board of supervisors i got a call from jay leno. true story. he called me to congratulate me on my public office and glad to know that other lenos were fairing well and asked if we had family in common and he laughed when i said i was part of his russian jewish part of the family so i left it with that. this is particularly appropriate to do this in san francisco and san francisco is a italian city and always has been and will be and to get things going i have seen you put in some years of service in telea eve and familiar with israel's politics you can get into san francisco's politics and i brought this and i know senator will say something as well and we want to congratulate you and all of our italian american community as we kickoff the year of italian culture in the united states and we look

started to lose patience with the fact that the republican party puts guys like paul broun on the science committee in congress. yes, paul broun is on the science committee. he oversees federal science policy for us as a nation. >> i've come to understand that all that stuff i was taught about evolution and embryology and big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell. and it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior. >> that one led to a write-in campaign in this past election where people in paul broun's georgia district got thousands of voters to write in charles darwin instead of voting for paul broun. it was protest vote against him while he ran unopposed technically. it was also a plea to the republican party in washington to at least please not put that pit of hell guy back on the science committee. republicans in washington put him back on the science committee anyway. the existence of a congressman like paul broun says something about our times, and it says something about his district, and it says

't. and so in high school, i took no physics, no science. i did mathematics for boys in the freshman year, and there was a general science course and i thought it was wonderful. but that's about it for that. and another one of my influences was kenny isaacs. kenny isaacs was a local boxing hero. and i was one of these kids that was getting beat up all the time by bullies. i wasn't much of a physical specimen. and kenny isaacs was-- he was the fighter of fighters. everyone admired that guy. i remember going to lynn and watching him fight sometimes. i was about maybe 14 years old, 13, 14, and saying, "wow, this guy is so great." i wish i could be there in his corner, be sort of the kid that comes up with the water bucket, you know, and helps him. this is a gladiator, no one beat him up. but anyway, key isaacs was a big influence because, to make a long story short, three years later, kenny aacs was in my corne and llow lived next door to me, eddie mccarthy, who was a professional fighter 135-pound, lightight, very good guy. and he took me under his wing. but then he went off to the korean w

'm concerned when there are really inaccurate statements being made when we have the science to to prove it. >> when you are in case with the d.a. and say the complexity is the same, maybe variance on both sides sometimes. but similarly, couldn't you say you are already saying that when a district attorney is in court without you there, those are court events, but a lot of times -- i don't want to paraphase, but someone dismissive they could be minor events. but on the flipside, couldn't they be major events when you are not defending them and for the events that you are not there and the district attorney is there, you would be able to extrapolate one way or another and maybe we could talk about how to do it an average of time spent or how serious those masters matters are? is that correct? >> if we say that you as supervisors only get time for in chambers and that is all. we would not accurately gauge your workload. so the only way to determine the actual numbers of hours worked on a case is to look at the number of hours that it takes to work on the case and not by looking at simp

-profit company funded by the national science foundation and saddleback college, is primarily in the business of training students for the workforce. uc-irvine professor dr. mark madou compares this 3d manufacturing revolution to that of the personal computer transformation of the 1980s, when few businesses bought that new technology, and fewer still knew how to use it. "the connection between science and workforce is not there anymore, so we might invent new things and make these new machines, but we don't have the people that can staff them and operate them and that is what we are especially good at. that's the education of these new tools." salar soroori is researching a biomedical project. he says the 3d printing technology offers real cost savings for the healthcare industry.
